Stained teeth explained
Many people falsely assume that stained teeth come about as a result of poor oral health and this is not always the case, it has been stated.
C Health reported that over time, stains can build up under the surface of the teeth and these are best tackled through laser teeth whitening treatments, rather than bleaching.
Indeed, the other factors which can increase the likelihood of stains include smoking, bad diets, drinking large amounts of coffee or red wine and in general, failing to brush regularly.
The publication noted: “Besides being an instant bad breath cure, quitting smoking can improve the appearance of your teeth. For many people, tooth staining is one of the most common side effects of smoking.”
Elsewhere, Napsnet.com recently published advice aimed at individuals with sensitive teeth. It noted that they should remember four easy ways to reduce their problem.
These are ensuring they maintain a good oral health routine – ie brushing regularly – avoiding acidic foods, brushing with a soft-bristled toothbrush and using a desensitising toothpaste.
